I am a mother of four with a husband who was recently reactivated by the army. I was unable to keep my job and do not have daycare to work. I need emergency assistance with rent and bills.

During September, I first saw my mother struggling. By then we had our car reposed and my mother couldn’t afford to pay the layaway for my school clothes. I didn’t think that my clothes were big deal because I work 25 to 30 hrs a week, and I could buy clothes with my paycheck. I then started to give my mom 45$ a month to keep her phone on , so I could talk to her more , considering she works 5 to 6 days a week , sometimes pulls a double shift , and goes to school full time , plus I also work . My mom is the most hardworking person I know. She doesn’t get even half of what she deserves.
Recently we got a water bill in the mail for 1500$ we found out that there was a leak causing more than enough water every time we take a shower or flush a toilet. There is no way my mom could afford that; we can’t even afford a car. Well my mom started putting money in the bank for the bill, paying it little by little. They cut it off eventually. Well someone turned it on illegally without my mom knowing, she didn’t even know it had been cut off. Well a couple weeks went by and our water got cut off again. This time until the bill is completely paid off. My mom got another letter in the mail from the water company saying all her accounts from the bank had been frozen including mine and my brother’s account, because my mother’s name is on it. They took every last bit of money we had. Including the 92 cent in my brothers account, and the 60$ in my savings. There was over 600 $ in my mother’s account to pay for other bills including the rent, and lights, etc.
I’m terrified this Christmas won’t be a happy Christmas. I’m not asking for any thing from my mother because I know she can’t afford anything right now. All I want for Christmas is for her to be happy. I want to help her all a can, but obviously I cant help her much. Our life is continuously going downhill, and we need as much help as possible.
